For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgement, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Romans 12:3

I was reading some Manning today, and came across this verse. I find it funny how people get caught up in all the negative aspects of the American evangelical church, and lose sight of the soundness of the Word of God. I was thinking aobut how St. Paul wrote these words. Not Oprah, or Dr. Phil; St. Paul, former Christian killer, conservative Jew. A Roman citizen who lived over 2,000 years ago. A "Bible guy".

Times have changed, but we are not more enlightened now than we were in history.
